History[ | ]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1990-1992
Service: 1992-2014
Vehicles Built: 100-150
Operators: Israel

The Magach MBTs were (more or less) modified American M48 and M60 series of Main Battle Tanks, purchased by Israel starting from the 1960s. The first of these tanks were secretly provided by West Germany with the official U.S. deliveries following during the years after. The M48 series bore the designation Magach 1 to Magach 5, the M60 MBTs (the initial version) bore the designation Magach 6 and Magach 7 while the M60A1 and M60A3 MBTs bore the designation Magach 6A to Magach 6B. For many decades, the Magach series formed the backbone of the Israeli armored forces alongside the Super Shermans, Centurions and Merkava MBTs before they were finally retired in 2014.

The Magach 7A variant was an Israeli M60 MBT, heavily upgraded over the long years of service. The Israelis have always been anything but resourceful and have kept the old M60s from the early 1970s in service for decades, even though by the time they were finally phased out in 2014, little remained of the original machines. By 1984, all the Israeli M60 tanks were upgraded with a new FCS as well as other elements, but by that time, the Blazer ERA started to become obsolete against the new generation of missiles provided by the Soviet Union to Palestinian terrorists. In order to combat that threat, the M60-based Magach 6 was fitted with a brand new set of extra armor. The first of these upgrades was the Magach 7A (7 Alef), appearing in the early 1990s. The armor significantly improved the protection against both kinetic and HEAT projectiles. Its composition is classified but it included laminate layers and high-grade armor steel. There was a price to it, though – the armor was quite heavy.

The Magach 7A was a lumbering beast but it did its job and protected its crew. There was a notable incident where, in 1997, a Magach 7A was hit by a salvo of Hezbollah Malyutka missiles, fired from an elevated position. Out of twenty missiles fired, only two penetrated the tank. The Magach 7A variant was never exported and was phased out in 2014 along with the other Magach series tanks.
